Keys not responsive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why is it that in my visual studio, some keys do not function or do some action other than the one meant to. 

    For instance, [ctrl+s] does not work at all, the arrow keys work like the [alt] key.

    had it been the same across all my device then i'd be at ease knowing that it is a HW issue but this only happens in Visual Studio.

    Am currently using Visual Studio Enterprise 16.2.1

    Any advise on this.

    NB: i have to restart the machine a multiple times for it to work correctly.

  • Hi john,

    According to your description, what did you do before you encountered this problem? Did you change any shortcuts keys?

    Please follow these steps to :

       1. restore your shortcut settings to default

           Open the VS-->Tools--->Options-->Environment-->Keyboard-->Reset

      2. You can also Tools-->Import and Export settings--->Reset All Settings to restore the whole VS IDE.

    Any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Perry

  • Thank you @Perry,

    But as i am one person who only customizes when necessary. rarely do i change my settings.

    I like the default ones.

    However this did not stop me from trying your solution. I'll patiently wait for some time to see if such behavior occurs again as for now it is working good.
